terminal kalopsia

My name is Ariel. I am eighteen, inclined towards creative writing, prone to fits of fangirlish ecstasy, generally quite neurotic, and a student at Williams College.

Nice hostels in Reykjavik are so much more affordable than I expected. This trip to Iceland actually seems kind of plausible, which makes me all the more desperate for it.

Well, Spring Break 2015 it is. Maybe I can even figure out a nonsensical reason for Williams to subsidize the trip. Until then, I’ll just sit here and write plays about Arizona and indulge in a momentary bout of homesickness for the west coast.

Today, a fellow labber and I spent our entire lunch break discussing the intricacies of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Then we reached our playwriting classroom and proceeded to cackle for five minutes straight after pulling up hammy Ozai scenes from YouTube.

I’ll miss having these people around. Contrary to my prior fears, I don’t feel lonely.

For the first time I can remember, I’m pleased with something I’ve written! Said piece happens to be a ten-minute one-act for my summer playwriting workshop. At its heart lies the snarky, often-confrontational, but ultimately well-meaning budding friendship between Zoe the waitress and Scott the hapless new dishwasher. It feels good to delve into functioning relationships instead of indulging in angsty melodrama (even if most of the play deals with race relations and identity and all that fun stuff). As self-serving as it is, it really does feel nice to invest in my own characters again. I also really want to request OC fanart, but I don’t know how to broach the subject. 

The Lab’s also beginning to dive into scene study, in which I read for all the waifish teenagers and children in each play. I guess I don’t mind feigning innocence and naivete, though—it’s somewhat second nature at this point. It’s interesting to revisit all the times in my life I’ve ever had to behave against my personality in order to fit into a preconceived notion. In that sense, maybe I have more acting experience than I previously thought.

Good times ahead. Awaiting the fishing partner’s arrival in Williamstown. In the meantime, I’m sleeping and getting up at reasonable hours and beginning to act like a functioning human being. Hopefully this isn’t just a fluke.
